Urges general public to reclaim vehicles in Police Custody

IGP Usman Alkali Baba has ordered the immediate evacuation of all impounded, accidented, and unregistered exhibit cars from Police Stations around the country. The order is based on the unsightly and unprofessional manner in which these vehicles are constantly packed within police facilities, generating a nuisance and filthy sight at police stations.

The IGP frowns on the practice of stockpiling vehicles recovered from crime scenes or vehicles whose ownership is being contested or in doubt in police premises with stringent requirements and cumbersome processes for the rightful owners to reclaim them, emphasizing that such an act will no longer be tolerated as it is a gross abuse of administrative and judicial processes.

The IGP goes on to say that heads of police stations and formations should go through the proper procedures to do the necessary evaluations and release such vehicles in these categories on the bond to their owners.

The IGP reiterates that the directive is part of efforts being put in place by his administration to ensure conducive working environment for its personnel in order to set in motion such required strategies to combat crime and criminality in the country. The IGP further assures that decongesting the Police Stations and facilities nationwide would be of great operational advantage to the Force in effectively dispensing its policing responsibilities and giving succour to the owners of such exhibit vehicles.

The Inspector-General of Police equally urges all concerned members of the public to approach various Police stations/formations for the recovery and claims of their vehicles, with valid proof of ownership and proper means of identification.
